Yari threatens Matawalle, says governor may lose seat


A former governor of Zamfara State, Alhaji AbulAziz Yari, has told the state governor, Bello Matawalle, that if he eventually defected from the People’s Democratic Party, he would lose his seat and this is going by the Supreme Court’s verdict that brought him into power.

This statement was altered by Yari at the secretariat of the All Progressive Congress in Gusau on Sunday while distributing about N1.3bn assorted grains he purchased for the APC supporters as Ramadan gift.

He was represented by Senator Kabiru Marafa.

Speaking further, he said that although nobody had informed them that Matawalle plans to defect to APC but cautioned that the Supreme Court nullified the election of the APC candidates in 2019 and announced the PDP candidates as winners who would remain in power till 2023.

“As such, until after that period, any PDP elected officer who defects to another party must also vacate his seat going by the court’s judgment,” he said.
